Former United States Vice President Joe Biden won the first victory to decide the Democratic candidate for the White House, which was held in Ohio this Tuesday with more than 70 percent of the support.
In particular, according to the CNN television broadcaster’s forecast, Biden, the only democrat to stay in the race, won 73.8 percent of the vote. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has now received 15.2 percent of the vote.
Despite retiring from the presidential race earlier this month, Sanders, who voted for Biden, was still in the poll to vote in Ohio.
His goal was to gather “as many delegates as possible” to have “significant influence” on the August National Democratic Convention, which nominates the Democratic Party presidential candidate. 1,991 delegates are required for the nomination that Biden is expected to receive.
